The Partition takes its name from its unique dual-core design, with a thick layer of copper jacket separating its front and rear halves. The front section of the Partition is exposed at the tip to guarantee rapid expansion following high velocity impact. The rear section retains over two thirds of the Partition’s total weight, according it the momentum it needs to penetrate deeply.
The Partition’s jacket is wafer thin around its mouth to promote even faster deformation, yet it thickens around its midsection to control the rate and width of expansion. Crimp locks at the Partition’s base prevent deformation throughout ignition, keeping its streamlined form intact so that it may always offer a .384 ballistic coefficient following a muzzle velocity of 3,100. Here we have a deer hunting bullet that doesn’t just expand, but boasts a quadruple digit foot-pound force well beyond 400 yards.
The Partition has remained virtually unchanged for around 70 years, because its Oregonian creator couldn’t find very much left to improve about it. Federal respects Nosler’s achievement by giving every Partition a first-rate brass case, sensitive Boxer primer, and undeviating charge of clean burning propellant.
